All about Madrid tourism

Madrid is the capital of Spain and one of the most exciting destinations in Europe. Most travelers choose to visit Madrid because of its accessibility, proximity to historic towns like Toledo and Segovia, rich cultural scene (the city’s main museums, the Prado, Reina Sofia, and Thyssen-Bornemisza are the pride of Madrid tourism), and legendary nightlife.

The best times to travel to Madrid are in spring, early summer, and autumn, when the weather is at its best and the city’s countless outdoor cafes are full of life. If you’re planning your Madrid vacation in August, remember that that is the traditional vacation month in Spain and many of citizens leave the city for the coast or countryside.

Holidays in Madrid area are chance to visit some of
the best museums in the world. The Prado Museum’s collection boasts some of Spain’s finest artists like Velazquez and Goya while the more modern Reina Sofia Museum has works by Miro, Salvador Dali, and Picasso, including the artist’s famed "Guernica." While these museums are all within walking distance, Madrid also has one of Europe's most modern and efficient Metro systems, so you can enjoy your vacation in Madrid with ease.

However, one of the best ways to enjoy your Madrid holidays is to just explore the streets of the city’s historic Las Austrias and La Latina districts and enjoy the tasty tapas bars and quiet, sunny squares. Don’t forget to stop by the La Latina district’s Rastro street market on Sundays to grab a souvenir of your trip to Madrid and go for tapas like a local.
